While walking along the beach, I like to keep an eye out for interesting objects to sketch for possible reference in larger paintings in the studio. On this day, I picked up two feathers on the sand that were from sea birds and a couple of shells to sketch in pencil and color pencil.
I feel as if my artwork gives the viewer an insight into my life's journey. This is most evident in a plein air painting, where I can reflect back to a time and location. My sketchbooks tell a different story of thoughts and ideas scribbled within my drawing and painting studies.
